7 PART I STRATEGIC PARTNERS ANNUITY ONE PROSPECTUS SUMMARY Glossary We have tried to make this prospectus as easy to read and understand as possible. By the nature of the contract, however, certain technical words or terms are unavoidable. We have identified the following as some of these words or terms. ACCUMULATION PHASE The period that begins with the contract date (which we define below) and ends when you start receiving income payments, or earlier if the contract is terminated through a full withdrawal or payment of a death benefit. ADJUSTED CONTRACT VALUE When you begin receiving income payments, the value of your contract minus any charge we impose for any type of tax based on the amount of purchase payments. ANNUITANT The person whose life determines the amount of income payments that we will pay. If the annuitant dies before the annuity date, the co-annuitant (if any) becomes the annuitant if the contract s requirements for changing the annuity date are met. If, upon the death of the annuitant, there is no surviving co-annuitant, and the owner is not the annuitant, then the owner becomes the annuitant. ANNUITY DATE The date when income payments are scheduled to begin. BENEFICIARY The person(s) or entity you have chosen to receive a death benefit. CONTRACT DATE The date on which we credit your initial purchase payment. We will credit the initial purchase payment to your contract within two business days from the day on which we receive your payment and all necessary paperwork in good order at the Prudential Annuity Service Center. Contract anniversaries are measured from the contract date. A contract year starts on the contract date or on a contract anniversary. CONTRACT OWNER, OWNER, OR YOU The person entitled to the ownership rights under the contract. CONTRACT VALUE This is the total value of your contract, equal to the sum of the values of your investment in each investment option you have chosen. Your contract value will go up or down based on the performance of the investment options you choose. CONTRACT WITH CREDIT A version of the annuity contract that provides for a bonus credit with each purchase payment that you make and has higher withdrawal charges and insurance and administrative costs than the Contract Without Credit. CONTRACT WITHOUT CREDIT A version of the annuity contract that does not provide a credit and has lower withdrawal charges and insurance and administrative costs than the Contract With Credit. CREDIT If you choose the Contract With Credit, this is the bonus amount that we allocate to your account each time you make a purchase payment. The amount of the credit is a percentage of the purchase payment. Bonus credits generally are not recaptured once the free look period expires. Our reference in the preceding sentence to generally are not recaptured refers to the fact that we have the contractual right to deduct, from the death benefit we pay, the amount of any credit corresponding to a purchase payment made within one year of death. DEATH BENEFIT If the sole owner dies, or if jointly owned, the first to die of the owner or joint owner, the beneficiary you designate will receive, at a minimum, the total amount invested, reduced by withdrawals or a potentially greater amount related to market appreciation. The guaranteed minimum death benefit is available for an additional charge. 6

8 PART I DOLLAR COST AVERAGING FIXED RATE OPTION (DCA FIXED RATE OPTION) An investment option that offers a fixed rate of interest for a selected period during which periodic transfers are automatically made to selected variable investment options or to the one-year fixed rate option. We guarantee your money will earn at least 3% while it is allocated to this option. Payments you allocate to the DCA Fixed Rate Option become part of Pruco Life of New Jersey s general assets until they are transferred. FIXED INTEREST RATE OPTIONS Investment options that offer a fixed rate of interest for either a one-year period (fixed rate option) or a selected period during which periodic transfers are made to selected variable investment options or to the one-year fixed rate option (dollar cost averaging fixed rate option). GMDB PROTECTED VALUE The guaranteed amount of the guaranteed minimum death benefit, which may equal the GMDB step-up value. The protected value will be subject to certain age restrictions and time durations, however it will still increase by subsequent invested purchase payments and reduce by withdrawals. GMDB STEP-UP We may use the GMDB step-up value to compute the GMDB protected value of the guaranteed minimum death benefit. If the sole owner or the older of the owner and joint owner is less than age 80 on the contract date, the GMDB step-up before the first contract anniversary is the initial invested purchase payment increased by subsequent invested purchase payments and reduced by the effect of withdrawals. The GMDB step-up on each contract anniversary will be the greater of the previous GMDB step-up and the contract value as of such contract anniversary. Between contract anniversaries, the GMDB step-up will be increased by invested purchase payments and reduced by the effect of withdrawals. If the sole owner or the older of the owner and joint owner is between age 80 and 85 on the contract date, the GMDB step-up before the third contract anniversary is the sum of invested purchase payments, reduced by the effect of withdrawals. On the third contract anniversary the GMDB step-up will be adjusted to the greater of the then current GMDB step-up or the contract value as of that contract anniversary. GOOD ORDER An instruction received at the Prudential Annuity Service Center, utilizing such forms, signatures and dating as we require, which is sufficiently clear that we do not need to exercise any discretion to follow such instructions. GUARANTEED MINIMUM DEATH BENEFIT (GMDB) An optional feature available for an additional charge, which guarantees that the death benefit that the beneficiary receives will be no less than a certain GMDB protected value. GUARANTEE PERIOD A period of time during which your invested purchase payment in the market value adjustment option earns interest at the declared rate. We will make available one or more of the following guarantee periods equal to any or all of the following: 1 year (currently available only as a renewal option), 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years, 6 years, 7 years, 8 years, 9 years, and 10 years. INCOME OPTIONS Options under the contract that define the frequency and duration of income payments. In your contract, we also refer to these as payout or annuity options. INCOME PHASE The period in which you receive income payments under the contract. INVESTED PURCHASE PAYMENTS Your purchase payments less any deduction we make for any tax charge. JOINT OWNER The person named as the joint owner, who shares ownership rights with the owner as defined in the contract. STRATEGIC PARTNERS ANNUITY ONE PROSPECTUS SUMMARY 7

13 PART I STRATEGIC PARTNERS ANNUITY ONE PROSPECTUS SUMMARY Summary for Sections 1 9 continued SECTION 7 How Can I Access My Money? You may withdraw money at any time during the accumulation phase. If you do so, however, you may be subject to income tax and, if you make a withdrawal prior to age 59 1 /2, an additional tax penalty as well. For the Contract Without Credit, if you withdraw money less than seven contract anniversaries after making a purchase payment, we may impose a withdrawal charge ranging from 1 7%. For the version of the Contract With Credit, we may impose a withdrawal charge ranging from 5-8%. Under the market value adjustment option, you will be subject to a market value adjustment if you make a withdrawal or transfer from the option prior to the end of a guarantee period. SECTION 8 What Are The Tax Considerations Associated With The Strategic Partners Annuity One Contract? Your earnings are generally not taxed until you withdraw them. If you take money out during the accumulation phase, the tax laws first treat the withdrawal as a withdrawal of earnings, which are taxed as ordinary income. If you are younger than age 59 1 /2 when you take money out, you may be charged a 10% federal tax penalty on the earnings in addition to ordinary taxation. A portion of the payments you receive during the income phase is considered a return of your original investment and therefore will not be taxable as income. Generally, all amounts withdrawn from an Individual Retirement Annuity (IRA) contract (excluding Roth IRAs) prior to age 59 1 /2 are taxable and subject to the 10% penalty. SECTION 9 Other Information This contract is issued by Pruco Life of New Jersey, an indirect subsidiary of the Prudential Insurance Company of America, and sold by registered representatives of affiliated and unaffiliated broker/dealers. RISK FACTORS There are various risks associated with an investment in the market value adjustment option that we summarize below. Issuer Risk. Your market value adjustment option is issued by Pruco Life of New Jersey, and thus is backed by the financial strength of that company. If Pruco Life of New Jersey were to experience significant financial adversity, it is possible that Pruco Life of New Jersey s ability to pay interest and principal under the market value adjustment option could be impaired. Risks Related to Changing Interest Rates. You do not participate directly in the investment experience of the bonds and other instruments that Pruco Life of New Jersey holds to support the market value adjustment option. Nonetheless, the market value adjustment formula (which is detailed in the appendix to this prospectus) reflects the effect that prevailing interest rates have on those bonds and other instruments. If you need to withdraw your money during a period in which prevailing interest rates have risen above their level when you made your purchase, you will experience a negative market value adjustment. When we impose this market value adjustment, it could result in the loss of both the interest you have earned and a portion of your purchase payments. Thus, before you commit to a particular guarantee period, you should consider carefully whether you have the ability to remain invested throughout the guarantee period. In addition, we cannot, of course, assure you that the market value adjustment option will perform better than another investment that you might have made. Risks Related to the Withdrawal Charge. We impose withdrawal charges under the variable annuities that offer the market value adjustment option as a companion option. If you anticipate needing to withdraw your money prior to the end of a guarantee period, you should be prepared to pay the withdrawal charge that we will impose. 12

More detail concerning each underlying mutual fund s fees and expenses is contained in the prospectus for each underlying mutual fund. The maximum and maximum total operating expenses depicted below are based on historical fund expenses for the year ended December 31, Fund expenses are not fixed or guaranteed by the Strategic Partners Annuity One contract, and may vary from year to year. Total Annual Mutual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that are deducted from underlying mutual fund assets, including management fees, distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees, and other expenses) Minimum Maximum Total Annual Underlying Mutual Fund Operating Expenses 0.37% 3.00% * Actual expenses for the mutual funds are lower due to any expense reimbursements or waivers.

16 Expense Examples These Examples are intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the contract with the cost of investing in other variable annuity contracts. These costs include contract owner transaction expenses, contract fees, separate account annual expenses, and underlying mutual fund fees and expenses. The Examples assume that you invest $10,000 in the contract for the time periods indicated. The Examples also assume that your investment has a 5% return each year and assumes the maximum fees and expenses of any of the mutual funds, which do not reflect any expense reimbursements or waivers. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions, your costs would be as indicated in the tables that follow. Example 1a: Contract With Credit: Step-Up Guaranteed Minimum Death Benefit; and You Withdraw All Your Assets This example assumes that: ) You invest $10,000 in the Contract With Credit; ) You choose the Step-Up Guaranteed Minimum Death Benefit; ) You allocate all of your assets to the variable investment option having the maximum total operating expenses; ) The investment has a 5% return each year; ) The mutual fund s total operating expenses remain the same each year; and ) You withdraw all your assets at the end of the indicated period. Example 1b: Contract With Credit: Step-Up Guaranteed Minimum Death Benefit; and You Do Not Withdraw Your Assets This example makes exactly the same assumptions as Example 1a except that it assumes that you do not withdraw any of your assets at the end of the indicated period.
